Re: Wheel surprises

The rim of the frontwheel looks like a 4777 ;) ;)
If those are stainless steel spokes, they could be Original Moto Guzzi.
The 6bolt carriers are made by Grimeca to fit Guzzi and Ducati.
The discs are EBC floaters.
All in all a nice and working upgrade :-D :-D

Re: Frame material

You mean You want to replace the back downtube of a Darmah , the one that goes from the rear engineplate to the toprails ? WITH a dent, a bend AND the "modification" for a bigger battery ? Why not look for a old, damaged frame and cut out that part, so that You can use the engine (or a template) to ...

Re: Neutral switch paradox

Inner covers are interchangeable : singles (4 or 5 speed) and paralleltwins. The latter also have the neutralswitchlug. The moving parts are also the same BUT there is a difference in some diameters of the shaft of the gearpedal. And off course the part that controls the fixation of the gears : 4 or...

Re: Neutral switch paradox

If the 750 didn't have the hardware to fit a neutral switch, all parts of a 860 can be swapped and pronto : a 750 with neutral light that works.
Shouldn't be too difficult to come by ?

Re: Lower bevel gear spindle shimming - Darmah

Due to the helicoidal teeth, the connecting gears are pushed outward (and upward), hence only shims #24 on the outside. Since the gear to the crank is a straight-toothed (?) one, there is no need for additional shimming. Don't want to make the shimming harder than it already is :shock: :shock: ciao ...

Re: Helloooo - another UK Darmah joining in

Usually the beer gets opened when all shims fall on the ground and the drive to continue fades :( :(
Just one, otherwise You may develope a drinking problem on top of the Ducati problem :tisk:
Enjoy the rebuild, hope to give You some relevant info if needed.

Re: Vee Two Hailwood Replica

The engines that were used in the endurance-racers weren't entirely build by Ducati but by NCR. They got unofficial help from factory-employees and engineers, but because they were a governement-steered factory, they weren't allowed to spend money on such capitalist things as racing. Hence NCR-Ducat...

Re: Vee Two Hailwood Replica

Did VeeTwo recreate the engine, or are those of Ioannoni ? He has been building them for years.
Seeing the tacho going more than once over the 10K, I suspect there is a plainbearing crank in it.

Re: head bracket factory numbers

Not entirely correct, at least about the part number. Verlicchi stamped the frames with partnumber DGM 123 860 SS * *, sent them over to Ducati and Guido at Ducati entered the REAL framenumber between the stars. So in a few countries in Europe only the sixdigit number was used on the documents. ciao...

Re: Star stamp

Found those for a lot less money on several mostra scambio in Italy. Usually from eastern europe sellers. Aftermarket frames are available and could be replicated. I found that the welder at Verlicchi couldn't quite finish a particular weld and had a little fault in it, talking about S and SS frames...

Re: GTL500 Los Angeles

I guess You're Lucky : seems likt it is the second generation engine with the flat head. Previous the cylinders stuck out and fitted into the head (like the singles and v-twins) and were very hard to get gastight. Some suggestions for the saving of the engine : #1 Make a more sensible wiring harness...

Re: Overflowing Carb

Is the seat of the needle tight and the little washerin good condition ? When it isn't tight, fuel can dribble past it and overfill the bowl. I recently read something of a float that wasn't freely moving all the way down to up. So that it got stuck when down and didn't close the fuelinlet. When it ...

Re: Drum Brake sprocket carrier re-assembly

Tom, Seems Harm and his crew discovered that the drawing was wrong but simply added the #28 without adding the bush itself. When You say the bearings have float, do You mean they are loose in the carrier ? If the bush is too short (or the carrier isn't machined correct) maybe that's why the outer be...
